Variety Is The Spice Of Life

Author Alley brings variety and the community together for a fundraiser benefiting Arlington library

Progressive Rising Phoenix Press is an innovative non-traditional publisher founded by authors. We believe a network of authors working together is far more effective than working alone.

Progressive Rising Phoenix recognizes that the publishing industry has changed. Our program is not a fit for every author and every author is not a fit for Progressive Rising Phoenix. We are building a selective list. For this reason we do not solicit authors but do accept submissions.
